It does not appear that the claimn in the instant case would fall within that class of claims described by item 11 of our 1954rmemorand'trn. In any event, we have no objection to increasing 'this limitation due to the effects of inflation. Accordingly, B-7'2701-0..glube 28, 1954, is modified by increasing the monetary limit in iteih 11 from $10,000 to $25,000.
